Patina, white trim, and a real wood truck bed make this 1954 Chevrolet 3100 5-window seem like the perfect workman's time capsule. But when you notice how low that air ride suspension gets and hear the sound of the fuel-injected V8, you realize this classy pickup is also great custom cruiser.
The Art Deco design of the 1954 Chevy truck combined with the turquoise and white really gives this a great period-correct feel. And the ever-popular patina makes it look like you scored the ultimate barn find – especially since this is the desirable 5-window cab. We know you'll love taking this to car shows where everyone thinks you've brought your grandfather's pickup... but then people might start to notice the shine of the bumpers or the checkered flag emblems on the fenders. You can literally watch their jaws drop at the same time you lower the air suspension right down to the ground. In fact, to fit the larger wheels, gas tank, and other components under the lowered suspension, the truck bed was custom raised – a cool custom trick that most people won't notice right away because they're too busy just marveling at the real wood bed and solid 22-inch wheels.
The two-tone turquoise and white interior handsomely matches the exterior. While it has a great period-correct presentation, there are also some nice subtle upgrades. For example, the bench seat has a more modern weave and contoured padding for upgraded comfort. And while your steering wheel is a classic-style unit, you can see it has been borrowed from a Chevy Impala for a more artful touch. Beyond that is a full set of Dolphin gauges that provide all the necessary info with their crisp markings. Plus, your right hand is always within easy reach of the remote suspension controls, so you can raise and lower the all four airbags on a whim.
You're going to be showing this one off to plenty of surprised people, you're also going to love lifting the hood. After all, few will be expecting a modern V8 power-plant. The 6.0-liter Vortec V8 is a great way to get fuel-injected muscle while remaining faithful to bow tie power. To get the most out of this modern V8, a 4LE80 transmission with highway-friendly overdrive was added. More than just a good cruiser, you also get some nice performance upgrades, too. The exhaust has a throaty rumble to match the upgraded motor; the front suspension has been upgraded to a Mustang II-style independent unit; and the rear suspension has been fortified for extra power. Plus, you add in great anytime driving features like power steering, vented front disc brakes, and the modern low profile tires.
With barely 1,700 miles since completion, the so-low appearance on such a nicely finished patina pickup is worth all the attention you'll get all on its own. But then you also get all the upgrades that make this a true comfortable and powerful custom, and that's why we know you have to hurry if you want to take it home.
